Description
This is based on the broadway version and the movie classical version.
The skirt is made from 15 metres of Gold 100% Silk Satin Charmeause, bought from an ebay stroe in the usa. 30 metres og metalic Gold piping between the rouched skirt panels, Bottom valance caused a lot of problems in creating and was made from Silk rushed Gold velvet and decorated by hand.
Lace and sparkle gold organza was used for the large bows on the skirt. The overlayer was Silk Organza in of White edges with Gold ribbon.
All these skirt layers were attatched to a single waistband.
This has my own homemade crinoline hoop, the first I had ever made with herringbone tapes.
It has a 3 layer petticoat over the top of the hoop to add volume.

Bodic has 4 layers and is boned and heavily stiffened, the Gold lace was decorated with Gold Swarovski Crystals in colour sunflower. Ruffle trim is made from the same Gold Silk used n the skirt.
Wig was styled by me.
I have alll the making of on my website and on youtube videos.
